After the thrills and spills of Magic Millions last Saturday it is back to regular racing fare this weekend.
There is even a day off racing in Victoria with that state running a nine week trial of race free Monday's. This Monday the jockeys are donning the whites (and orange) for the annual National Jockey's Trust cricket match. Richo caught up with Brenton Avdulla (pictured) to preview the game. Avdulla, a more than handy cricketer in his youth has been quite revealing (and amusing) in his assessment of his team mates and opponents in this week's Winning Post. He also delves into the highs and lows of his career. His story is part of plenty of great reading in this edition.
On the track, metropolitan racing in Melbourne and Sydney is at Flemington and Randwick.
We will have five start form, speed maps, overviews, comments and full tipster's grid for both meetings.
Racing returns to Morphettville Parks and Doomben in Adelaide and Brisbane. Again we'll have all the form to help you find a winner.
For Victorian readers, Saturday is the time-honoured Camperdown Cup. We'll have a lift out form guide to help you find a winner at this iconic meeting.
In New South Wales it is Cowra Cup day on Sunday. Cowra is one of four full form guides we'll have for the day's racing.
Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the Cranbourne and Canterbiury night meetings plus Ararat during the day, as well as fields, colours and selections for Ballina, Canberra and Toowoomba.
Winning Post also carries full-colour liftout guides for the Saturday meetings at Ascot, Newcastle (NSW edition) and Gold Coast (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.
Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.
Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.
Our readers have their say on page 4, while further back in the book Shane Templeton reminisces, Matt Stewart regales us, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport, Tony Kneebone brings you his Snippets column and Number Cruncher delivers the stats that matter.
Winning Post costs $5 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
